Manorbier Vineyard, Cootamundra
Nestled amongst four hectares of Shiraz vines, located just a short five minute drive from the Cootamundra town centre, you will find Manorbier Vineyard and B&B. Your delightful hosts Suzie and Richard are waiting to welcome you.
Suzie and Richard are however not your ‘typical’ wine grape provedores – Suzie’s background is fashion and advertising, raised on a family farm in Cootamundra; and Richard is a Barrister. The couple decided to make a tree change 26 years ago relocating from Sydney to raise their young family.
After originally breeding Angus cattle, the couple converted the property into a vineyard in 2004 to pursue their lifelong dream to grow wine grapes.
The Manorbier Vineyard cellar door overlooks the lush undulating landscape and welcomes all visitors to taste their wines made from the handpicked grapes from the property.
As for their favourite drop? Suzie can’t go past their 2012 Shiraz Rose, with Richard favouring the 2008 Allan Hope Shiraz.
